With your aks-dualo you have opted for a hoist which combines the two functions of lifting patients and assisting them to stand in one product. It guarantees you mobility, independence and consequently an improved quality of life. Alongside a high degree of safety, it offers care staff support when performing lifting and moving duties. The mature technology and the convenient configuration ensure safe use. The following basic features are what distinguish the aks-dualo: • Optional configuration as standard hoist (for lifting) or active hoist (for assisting to stand) • Electromotive lifting and/or standaid function • Spreadable chassis legs to increase stability • 24 V system with a removable battery pack • Can be folded up The aks-patient hoist is available in the following versions: • aks-dualo • aks-mini dualo Where descriptions and handling instructions in this operating manual refer to all aksdualo versions, we only specify the name of the basic model “aks-dualo”. Where information is given which is specific to particular versions, these versions, e.g., “aks-mini dualo” are mentioned explicitly. Read and observe this operating manual before every use. The present operating manual provides you with the information which is important for safe use. Keep the operating manual in the vicinity of the aks-patient hoist so that it is available for reference at any time. GA_Lifter_dualo_121213_EN_Rev1 Include this operating manual in the case of change of ownership of the aks‑patient hoist. Page 3 aks-dualo 2 Intended purpose General The patient hoist aks-dualo is an active class I medical device according to the EU Council Directive 93/42/EEC, Appendix IX. It can be employed in all areas of care work and is intended for use by care staff properly instructed in its operation. It is intended for short-term use not involving contact with injured skin and requires the use of a suitable aks-hoist sling. The patient hoist lift aks-dualo may be used for patients weighing up to max. 150 kg. The patient aks-dualo is only suitable for driving short distances within the patient's flat or area of activity on one floor. It must only be used on an even, horizontal floor. The climatic conditions must be an ambient temperature of 0 °C to 40 °C, humidity of 20% to 80%, air pressure of 700 hPa to 1060 hPa and in the range of normally composed atmospheric air. It is permitted to be used in wet areas. For example, this includes the toilet or the bath. This does not include using the patient hoist under the shower. The aks-dualo is not explosion protected and is not permitted to be used in potentially explosive areas. Clinical pictures such as osteogenesis imperfecta, osteoporosis or spinal column damage, as well as mental disorientation or epileptic seizures can represent contraindications. The aks-dualo is only permitted to be used after careful consideration of the individual patient by the doctor and the care personnel. Standard hoist In the standard hoist version the aks-dualo is solely to be used for lifting and transferring a patient in a suitable aks-sling. This is usually performed with the patient in a seated position, although it may also be performed when the patient is in a lying position if an aks-spreader bar and aks-sling for transport in the lying position are employed. Patients can even be lifted off the floor. The use of the active hoist requires the active participation of the patient. The ability to hold on to the lifting arm tightly is particularly important. Missing limbs or functional limitations of the musculoskeletal system (e.g., paraplegia) can limit or rule out the use of an active hoist. This must be decided by the operator on a case-by-case basis. Page 4 GA_Lifter_dualo_121213_EN_Rev1 Active hoist In the active hoist version the aks-dualo is solely to be used to assist a patient from a seated position to a standing position and then transfer them in a suitable aks-sling. It serves as an aid to the natural movement of standing up and sitting down and can be driven with the patient standing aboard so that they may still go to the toilet independently for example. Additionally, the patient’s participation stimulates his residual mobility by strengthening his circulation and musculature. aks-dualo 3 General safety instructions Read the operating manual completely before commissioning in order to avoid damage due to incorrect operation or hazards. It contains important information and instructions which are necessary for the proper operation of the aks‑patient hoist. • The Medical Devices Operator Regulations are binding for the operator / user of medical devices. • Only use the aks-patient hoist in accordance with the present operating manual.

It is fitted with lifting arms which can be removed without the need for tools and, depending on the application required, can be assembled as a standard hoist for lifting or an active hoist for assisting patients to stand. The U-shaped chassis is equipped with four castors, the rear two of which can be locked. The chassis legs can be spread by pressing a foot pedal. It may be necessary to adapt the chassis legs to the width of the place where the patient is sitting or to increase stability. A mast is mounted on the chassis. This can be folded forwards for transport or storage purposes. An ergonomic handle is attached to the mast to facilitate pushing of the patient hoist. In addition, the control unit and a removable battery pack can also be found on the side of the mast. The lifting arm holder is mounted on the top end of the mast. It can be adjusted using an electric lift motor. The standard lifting arm or active lifting arm respectively can be inserted into the lifting arm holder. The inserted lifting arm is secured with a socket pin to prevent its falling out. The inserted lifting arm is secured with a tube clip against falling out. The pin is attached to the lifting arm holder via a wire to ensure that is does not go missing. The standard lifting arms of the aks-dualo and aks-mini dualo versions are of different lengths. For safety reasons they are designed in such a way that it is not possible to insert them into the wrong hoist. Various aks‑spreader bars can be mounted on the standard lifting arm. These accept the different aks-slings. The active lifting arm has hooks on it, into which the slings can be hung directly. The aks-dualo active hoist also has a removable footboard with a height-adjustable shin pad affixed to the chassis. The footboard also has a holder for the standard lifting arm not currently in use. GA_Lifter_dualo_121213_EN_Rev1 The electromotive height adjustment of the lifting arm is performed by a linear motor, which also features a manual emergency lowering. This is controlled using a manual control unit. The required electrical energy is provided by a high performance, removable 24 V battery pack attached to the control unit. This can either be charged on the hoist or using a separate wall charging station. Page 10 aks-dualo 6 Assembly 6.1 Locking plate The aks-patient hoist is equipped with universal bolts and locking plates at several places. These locking plates allow you to mount and remove individual components quickly and without the need for tools, particularly in so far as the assembly and folding away of the hoist is concerned and when mounting or exchanging spreader bars. The correct application and disengaging of the locking plate is described below. Locking plate Applying the locking plate Slide the locking plate into the groove at the end of the bolt (Figure 04). The curved end of the plate slips over the bevel of the bolt. The locking plate is correctly positioned when it clicks into place audibly and can be rotated freely in the bolt’s groove. The incorrect and correct positions are shown in Figures 05 and 06 respectively. Universal bolt Figure 04 Incorrect GA_Lifter_dualo_121213_EN_Rev1 Figure 05 Correct Figure 06 Disengaging the locking plate Retract the curved end of the plate slightly and slide the locking‑plate out of the bolt’s groove (Figure 07). 2 1 Figure 07 Page 11 aks-dualo 6.2 Assembly of the standard hoist 1.

The rear castors are fitted with parking brakes which act directly on the wheels. To lock the castors, press the parking lever to the stop using your foot (Figure 28). The aks-patient hoist can no longer be pushed in this setting. To release the castors, press the parking lever pointing upwards (Figure 29). When locking the castors always ensure that both castors are locked! If only one castor is locked on a sloping floor, the unlocked wheel will roll downhill around the locked wheel. Depending on the slope of the surface, there is the danger that the aks‑patient hoist will tip over sideways. Locking lever Locking lever Castor locked Figure 29 GA_Lifter_dualo_121213_EN_Rev1 Figure 28 Castor released Page 18 aks-dualo 8.2 Spreader The chassis legs can be spread to increase stability during lifting and lowering. Press the right foot pedal down to spread the chassis legs (Figure 30). Press the left foot pedal down to return the chassis legs to their original parallel position (Figure 31). Moving the aks-patient hoist forwards and backwards gently makes it easier to spread the chassis legs. Ensure there is sufficient clearance from other objects when spreading the chassis legs. There must not be any objects or limbs located in the adjustment range. Foot pedal Foot pedal Figure 30 GA_Lifter_dualo_121213_EN_Rev1 8.3 Figure 31 Emergency stop button The power supply to the motor of your aks-patient hoist is disconnected immediately by pressing the red emergency stop button on the control unit (Figure 32). This function enables you to avoid damage in emergencies. The button is unlocked again by turning it clockwise (direction of arrow). Emergency stop button Figure 32 Page 19 aks-dualo 8.4 Mechanical emergency lowering The aks-patient hoist is equipped with mechanical emergency lowering in case of a defect in electrical parts or complete discharge of the battery‑pack. This is done by folding up the bar (Figure 33) at the fork head of the motor and turning the lift tube (as seen from above) clockwise. In this way, you lower the patient. Bar 1 Fork head 2 Lift tube Figure 33 8.5 Manual control unit The manual control unit is used to control the lift motor. It is fitted with a rocker switch (Figure 34). Press the left side of the rocker switch (up arrow) to raise the lifting arm and the right side (down arrow) to lower it. Left switch: Raise lifting arm Right switch: Lower lifting arm Figure 34 8.6 Batteries Attention: Always charge the batteries in a well ventilated place. Batteries must be completely charged before their first use. Connection Connect the mains battery charger (Figure 35) with the charging cable to the control unit (Figure 36) using the connection cable. Now plug the mains battery charger into a mains power socket with a connection value of 230 V / 50 Hz. Page 20 Mains battery charger Connection cable Figure 35 GA_Lifter_dualo_121213_EN_Rev1 General The batteries used in the aks-patient hoists are lead gel batteries. These batteries must be permanently charged (similar to a car battery). There is no memory‑effect for the batteries. A deep discharge damages the batteries so severely that they become unusable. New, freshly charged batteries have a capacity of approx. 40 lifting cycles under full load. aks-dualo The aks-patient hoist does not function with a mains battery charger connected! For the charging, always connect the mains battery charger to the aks‑patient hoist first and not to the mains power supply until afterwards. Failure to observe can result in damage to the unit! After the charging, disconnect the mains battery charger from the mains power supply first and then from the aks‑patient hoist. Indicator lamps on the control unit Green LED The correct connection of the mains battery charger to the control unit is indicated by the green LED on the control unit (Figure 36). If the green LED does not light, there is no charging voltage present, i.e., the mains battery charger or the connection is defective. Yellow LED Green LED Charging cable Yellow LED The yellow LED indicates the charging process (Figure 36). It also lights every time the mains Figure 36 battery charger is connected. When the batteries are completely charged, the yellow LED goes out and the mains battery charger automatically switches to standby‑mode. If the battery capacity is less than a specified value after some time, the mains battery charge switches on again automatically and the yellow indicator lamp is lit again. If the batteries are almost fully charged, the yellow indicator may flash for a short time. This is not a fault. Charging time and capacity indicator lamp on the manual control unit The batteries of the aks-patient hoist should always be charged when not in use. Depending on the condition of the batteries, the charging process can take up to 24 hours, however 12 hours are usually sufficient. GA_Lifter_dualo_121213_EN_Rev1 The batteries should be completely charged at least once per month in order to avoid a deep discharge, which can result in the destruction of the batteries. Capacity indicator lamp (green / red) If the battery capacity drops below a minimum value, when the switch is pressed the capacity indicator lamp on the manual control unit (Figure 37) changes from green to red and a warning tone is given at the same time. In this case, the batteries must be charged immediately. When red Figure 37 Page 21 aks-dualo When the green capacity indicator on the manual control unit is lit and the batteries are connected for charging, it only takes a few hours for the batteries to be fully charged again (fast charge). If the manual control unit indicator changes from green to red, the aks-patient hoist must not be operated further. A lifting cycle already started can, of course, be completed. Further operation in this condition (i.e., capacity indicator lamp lit red) results in a deep discharge and can thus result in damage to the batteries. If the batteries are now connected for charging, the charging voltage is reduced for the protection of the batteries. In this condition, the charging time is significantly increased (up to max. 3 days). If the batteries are not completely charged after 3 days, they are defective and must be replaced. Do not use the aks-patient hoist any more for lifting if the capacity control indicator is lit red or if a warning tone sounds during manual control. Failure to observe may damage the batteries. Removing and inserting the battery pack The battery pack on the aks-patient hoist can be removed without the need for tools. This gives you the possibility to exchange the battery pack quickly or charge it separately in a wall charging station. Recessed grip with unlocking lever 1. Insert your fingers into the recessed grip on the battery pack from above and pull the unlocking lever upwards (Figure 38). Battery pack 2. Simultaneously pull the battery pack off the mounting rail and then upwards and out of the holder (Figure 38). Mounting rail Control unit 3. To insert, repeat the process in the reverse order. Ensure that the unlocking lever clicks into place in the mounting rail and the battery pack lies securely flush to the mounting rail (Figure 39).

Universal bolt with locking plate Figure 50 Figure 51 Page 25 aks-dualo 9 Patient transport 9.1 Safety instructions Observe the following safety instructions before every lifting / assisting to stand and conveying of the patient: The member of care staff (user) must have the corresponding expert knowledge to select and use a suitable aks-sling. • For use as a standard hoist, check the permissibility of the combination of spreader bar and sling before use based on the Table 04 in Chapter 10 Accessories/ Combinations. • Check the correct sling size and sling form in relation to the patient. • Check the safe condition of the sling before every use. The sling must have neither tears in the material nor damaged seams. • Check whether the correct loop combination has been attached. All loops have 3 different mounting levels: long - medium - short. Each loop pair (e.g., leg loops, shoulder loops, etc.) must only show the following mounting combination: long - long, medium - medium or short - short. • Check whether all loops are mounted in the hooks. • Lock the wheels of the wheelchair, homecare bed, stretcher etc., in order to be able to raise and lower the patient safely. In doing so, leave the castors of the aks-patient hoist unbraked. • Plan the patient transport to be as short as possible and never leave the patient unsupervised when suspended in the sling or positioned on the footboard. • Supervise the patient during the transfer. Sharp movements of the patient or holding on to objects during the transfer can pose risks. • Only lift the patient as high as is necessary. • Ensure that the patient is positioned stably on the footboard when using the active hoist to assist him to stand and transport him. Employ a calf strap if necessary. • Keep the hoist slings away from extreme heat and naked flames; they are not flame-retardent. GA_Lifter_dualo_121213_EN_Rev1 • Page 26 aks-dualo 9.2 Patient transport with standard hoist In order to lift and convey a patient with the aks-dualo, it must be assembled as a standard hoist. Further prerequisites for this use are a suitable aks-spreader bar and suitable aks-sling. The type and size of the sling always depends on the stature of the patient and the type of use. aks provides several different spreader bars and a wide range of slings (see Chapter (10 Accessories/Combinations) which are adapted to the respective requirements. The attachment of an aks-standard sling (Figure 52) in combination with an aks-standard spreader bar on a patient in the lying position is described below. aks-standard sling Shoulder loop Manoeuvring handle Back panel of sling Leg strap Leg loop Figure 52 1. If the patient is lying on his back, roll him on to his side so that he is facing away from you. 2. Fold the aks-standard sling in half down the middle. 3. Place the aks-standard sling with the folded side down the back of the patient. When doing so, the aks logo and the labels must face downwards. Ensure that the bottom edge of the back panel of the sling reaches the coccyx and the top edge is at the patient's shoulders. 4. Now roll the patient back over the aks-standard sling on to his other side. GA_Lifter_dualo_121213_EN_Rev1 5. Now pull the folded half of the aks-standard sling under the patient and position it correctly. 6. Return the patient to his back. 7. The patient is lying correctly on the aks-standard sling if his back is completely on the back panel of the sling and the leg straps are next to the thighs. 8. Now raise the back part of the homecare bed until the patient is sitting almost upright. Page 27 aks-dualo 9. Pass the leg straps from the outside to the inside around the patient's respective thighs. 10. Position your aks-patient hoist with the aks-standard spreader bar so that the aks-standard spreader bar is at eye level in front of the patient. Ensure that the aks-standard spreader bar is not too close to the patient's face. 11. Before attaching the sling to the spreader bar make sure that both the shoulder loops and both the leg loops are at the same height. 12. Now hang both the shoulder loops on the outer hooks of the aks-standard spreader bar. 13. Then hang both the leg loops crossed over on the inner hooks. 14. Raise the lifting arm of the aks-patient hoist somewhat until the leg and shoulder loops become taut. Now check whether the aks-standard sling is attached correctly and comfortably. 15. You can now lift the patient. Use the manoeuvring handle located on the top edge of the back panel of the sling for easier manoeuvring. 9.3 Patient transport with active hoist In order to assist a patient to stand and convey a patient with the aks-dualo, it must be assembled as an active hoist. A suitable aks-standaid sling is also needed for this application. The size of the sling always depends on the patient's stature. Attaching an aks-standaid sling with chest loop (Figure 53) in combination with the aks-calf strap and the bringing of a seated patient to a standing position from a chair are described below: aks standaid sling with chest loop Sling loop Chest loop Figure 53 Page 28 GA_Lifter_dualo_121213_EN_Rev1 Underarm padding aks-dualo 1. Undo the Velcro on the chest loop on the aks-standaid sling and place the sling behind the patient. The stuck-on aks logo must be visible on the outside from behind and the underarm pads must be nestled in the armpits. 2. Close the chest loop over the patient's chest with the Velcro. Knee pad Calf strap (optional) Clamping lever 3. Now spread the chassis legs of the aksFootplate patient hoist and position it in front of the patient. Ensure that the patient lifts his feet beforehand. The aksFigure 54 patient hoist is orientated correctly if the patient's feet are comfortably and completely positioned on the footplate of the footboard. 4. Release the clamping lever on the shin pad and adjust the correct height of the shin pad (Figure 54). The top edge of the shin pad must be just below the patient's kneecaps. 5. Undo the Velcro on the aks-calf strap and place this around the patient's calves. Close the Velcro again. 6. Now lower the lifting arm if necessary and attach both sling loops of the aks-standaid sling to the hooks of the lifting arm. 7. Raise the lifting arm of the aks-patient hoist somewhat until the sling loops become taut. Now check whether the aks-standaid sling is attached correctly and comfortably. 8. The patient must now grasp the handles of the lifting arm tightly with both hands. GA_Lifter_dualo_121213_EN_Rev1 9. You can now assist the patient to stand and transport him to the desired place.

If the cause of the fault cannot be established and corrected, inform your aks authorised dealer. Table 05 Fault Possible causes Action Emergency stop button pressed Unlock emergency stop button aks-patient hoist does not lift Manual control unit cable not plugged in or plugged in incorrectly Plug in manual control unit cable (LED on the manual control unit does not light) Hoist connected to charger unit Wait until the charging process is complete, then disconnect the charger unit from the hoist Battery pack discharged Charge battery pack Battery pack defective Replace battery pack Motor cable not plugged in or plugged in incorrectly Plug in motor cable aks-patient hoist does not lift Battery pack discharged Charge battery pack (LED on the manual control lights red) Battery pack defective Replace battery pack Battery is not charged No correct connection between charging cable and mains battery charger Check plug connections Connection cable or mains battery charger defective Replace defective part aks-patient hoist does not lift (LED on the manual control unit lights green) GA_Lifter_dualo_121213_EN_Rev1 (green LED on the manual control does not light) Page 32 aks-dualo 12 Care / cleaning The aks-patient hoist can be cleaned manually using a damp cloth. Cleaning and care materials suitable for plastic furniture can be used as cleaning materials. Thereby, observe the following points: • Do not use any abrasive agents or cleaning materials containing ammonium chloride. • Only use dermatologically tested materials. • Do not use any basic and alkaline cleaning agents. • Do not use any aggressive cleaning agents (e.g., solvents) or hard brushes etc. • Do not dip the electrical components in water; clean these with a barely damp cloth. • Only use alcohol-free and chlorine-free disinfectants and methods from the RKI (Robert-Koch Institut) list or the disinfectants list of the VAH (Verbund für Angewandte Hygiene e.V.) for spraying and wiping disinfection. Observe the instructions and safety precautions from the manufacturers of the cleaning and disinfectant materials. GA_Lifter_dualo_121213_EN_Rev1 Never clean the aks-patient hoist, especially the electrical system, with a high pressure cleaner, water hose or similar because doing so could damage the surfaces and seals, and water could enter. Page 33 aks-dualo 13 When not in use If the aks-patient hoist is not needed, it should always be connected to the mains battery charger in order to ensure the full capacity of the batteries for the next use. The integrated charging electronics prevent overcharging of the batteries and switch to trickle charging when the batteries are completely charged. Always charge the batteries in a well ventilated place. 14 Storage Store the aks-patient hoist in as cool and dry a place as possible. The ambient conditions of the storage location should be at an ambient temperature of between 0°C and 40°C, humidity of between 20% and 80% and air pressure of between 700 hPa and 1060 hPa. Avoid direct sunlight. Use the original packaging for the storage. In the case of long periods of storage, it must be ensured that the batteries are completely charged at least once per month to avoid a possible deep discharge. A deep discharge results in destruction of the batteries. 15 Reuse The aks-dualo patient hoist is suitable for repeated use. GA_Lifter_dualo_121213_EN_Rev1 The aks-patient hoist must be cleaned, disinfected and serviced according to Chapter 20 Maintenance at the very latest just before the reuse. Page 34 aks-dualo 16 Service life The service life of the aks-patient hoist is largely dependent on the quantity of lifting procedures performed each day, the device’s being used correctly and regular maintenance. The aks-patient hoist has been tested for long-term functional capacity with 11,000 lift procedures according to DIN EN ISO 10535. Please note that the factory warranty of your aks-patient hoist is valid for 24 months from the date of purchase (see Chapter 18 Guarantee). 17 Disposal If the aks-patient hoist has outlived its purpose, the electrical components must be treated as waste electrical equipment according to the WEEE Directive (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) and disposed of properly. This is indicated by the symbol in Figure 55. In the case of electrical equipment brought into circulation as new equipment after 13/08/2005, the owner is legally obliged not to give their electrical components to municipal collecting points but to return them directly to the manufacturer. Our General Terms and Conditions are applicable for the return. Unusable batteries must not be disposed of in domestic waste. These must be disposed of in accordance with the regulations for the return and disposal of used batteries. Figure 55 GA_Lifter_dualo_121213_EN_Rev1 The used plastic and metal parts of the aks-dualo must be disposed of separately and properly. Contact your local disposal company for this. Page 35 aks-dualo 18 Warranty The aks-dualo and aks-mini dualo aks-patient hoists are distinguished by their long service lives and high reliability.
